Well, my lovely fiance' has made the tentative decision to apply for the Houston Police Department. I was thinking about applying once I finished my Associate's degree but, she already has a Bachelor's and is looking for a more fulfilling career track than the one she was on. Anyone have any advice for a woman who wants to serve the community in a policing role but with very little background in the industry? She's "petite" but she posesses an amazing attention to detail, unwavering work ethic and a strong dedication to anything she chooses to do. What are some of the things you fine folks have experienced working with women officers? Are they subjected to extra scrutiny or derision or are they respected as much as they deserve, as a rule? Give me some input, please. I really want to support her decision but, I want to make sure she's got the whole picture before she goes through with the change.
